Giants Round Third in the Race for an NL Post Season Slot

Even though the San Francisco Giants are 3 1/2 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West, and even though it’s August 31st, we haven’t quite hit Defcon One in The Giants Cove War Room. Don’t get me wrong. San Francisco is at the point where they need to fiercely focus on […]

San Francisco Giants Likely Need To Win NL West Division To Defend World Series Crown

One thing about a defending World Champion is that it is always entertaining to see that team have the chance to go for back-to-back titles in the following season’s playoffs.

When the Media Spreads Financial Misinformation about the Giants

Trying to give a compelling picture of the San Francisco Giants franchise, its operations and actual financial state isn’t an easy task. Because the Giants’ front office and ownership have created a multi-layered series of anecdotal stories about players and coaches, about the team’s beloved history, and about its finances all wrapped in a series […]

The Giants, the Numbers, and Other Hills to Climb

The dog days of August are feeling a lot mangier than usual. Don’t get me wrong– the 2015 MLB season is one of the most intriguing and exciting in several years. Thanks in large part to the Chicago Cubs, New York Mets, Toronto Blue Jays and an amazing number of super-talented high performing rookies who […]

The 2015 Playoff Race: Have the Giants Devalued their Biggest Asset?

In 2006, when Bruce Bochy was hired to manage the San Francisco Giants, he had just finished guiding the San Diego Padres to two consecutive National League West titles. Bochy also led the Pads to NL West titles in 1996 and 1998, when San Diego reached the World Series to play the New York Yankees. […]

Trade Deadline Moves Change Long-term MLB Balance of Power

The shortcut most sports media can’t help using to describe the results of non-waiver trades is “winners” and “losers”. It’s a journalistic shiny object that gives readers permission not to bother about thinking too much or making assessments on their own. The 2015 non-waiver trade deadline was no different. The New York Yankees and the […]

Expect the Giants to Make Some Serious Changes in the Next Three Weeks

The San Francisco Giants are going through a difficult stretch. But this “stretch” isn’t an aberration, it’s the Giants’ talent and depth finding its true level at the midway point of the 2015 season. Which is a funny thing to say about a 42-40 second place team on July 4th. That’s because the current problems […]

The Giants Have An Excellent Opportunity to Re-Set Their Attack

There is one safe assumption we can make about every Major League Baseball season: virtually every team will have injuries to players on the active 25 man roster. No one wants to see any ballplayer on any team get hurt, but when the inevitable does happen it can be an opportunity for teams that rarely […]

Giants Host Rockies For Most Expensive Series Remaining In June

After surprisingly getting swept at home by the division-rival Arizona Diamondbacks from June 12-14, the San Francisco Giants got back on track the following week. After splitting a four-game home-and-home series against the Seattle Mariners, the Giants were aiming to complete a sweep of their No. 1 nemesis, the Los Angeles Dodgers, but lost the […]

Giants’ Rollercoaster Search for Consistency, Runs

The San Francisco Giants have spent the first sixty-six games of the 2015 season in a rambling search for their identity and for consistent run production. With 40% of the season in the books, and a respectable 35-31 record through June 16th, the Giants have the feel of a Spring Training squad still seeking a […]

Giants Take On Stanton, Marlins On The Road For Most Expensive Tickets In June

The San Francisco Giants are now looking like a team who wants to successfully defend their 2014 World Series crown. After a slow start to the 2015 season, the Giants are one of the hottest teams in baseball after producing the National League’s best record in May, and suddenly find themselves atop NL West division. […]

Two Giant Developments: Hitting Shows Signs of Life and Roster Improves

Few things happen in the fan-centric, old school world of the San Francisco Giants. It’s a staid place where players get contracts for being fan favorites (or for just being inexpensive), and SF Giant fans become extremely upset on the rare occasion when any player is cut or traded. Meanwhile, in the rest of baseball, […]
